Men are from Meh; Women are from WTF!?!?!?!

The text of two instant message conversations, about the same subject – the first with Oldest Son, the second with Darling Daughter.  Both express surprise, excitement and some measure of disgust.

Both are a great example of the differences between men and women.

Me: Did you know that [Name Redacted] has a little girl now?

Oldest Son: No, I didn’t.

Me:  Know what they named her?

Me: Bella.

Oldest Son: …

Oldest Son: I don’t know how to respond to that. Please tell me it was more thought out than “lololol my wife lurvs teh Twilight.”


Me: Hey – did you know [Name Redacted] has a baby girl now?

Darling Daughter: He does?!!?

Darling Daughter: Oh, thats exciting!

Me: yup, born sometime last year.  And you will never guess what they named her.

Darling Daughter: What?

Me: You’re gonna hurl…

Darling Daughter: Bella!?!




Darling Daughter: In the next couple of years there are going to be 2 billion baby Bellas

Darling Daughter: That’s so disturbing!

Me: ROFL – yes it is

Darling Daughter: I’m gonna name my baby “Illiterate”

Darling Daughter: We’ll call her “Illi!”

At which point I became incapable of speech, I was laughing so hard.


I raised both of these people.  Sort of makes you think about the whole “nature” versus “nurture” thing, doesn’t it?

  1. Same reaction, different levels of emotion. That pretty much sums it up. I think men and women need to invest emotion into different things. That way it all evens out the universe. If we all cared about babies named “Bella”, who would care about the football score? Hee hee hee.

  2. Oh yes…the male and female mind is quite different…I love watching my boys trying to figure out what in the world my daughter is talking about…hubby too for that matter.
